Since we launched the Charity Digital Code of Practice, we’ve heard some great examples of how charities are using it. Whether they are small or large, starting out or advanced, we’ve been inspired by charities telling us what they’re doing with the Code, and how they’re using it to become fit for the future.

We want to celebrate the work of the charities who are pioneering adoption of the Code, deploying digital to help their charities increase their impact.

Here are some stories from our Code champions on how the Charity Digital Code of Practice has helped them respond to the Covid-19 pandemic, and working digitally during lockdown:

Other early Code champions include:

  • The Royal British Legion
  • World Vision
  • Pilotlight
  • Superhighways
  • One Knowsley

We’ll be sharing more of their stories as the Code develops.

If your charity is using the Code and if you’d like to share your experience to inspire others by becoming a Champion please email We can help promote what you’ve done and we may be able to offer you pro bono advice about implementing the Code.

“Like any organisation, charities can learn a lot about what they do, who they serve and the impact they have, by drawing on their data."

‘I don’t do digital’.”
